But were the Arabs really sincere w/ that proposal? I'm thinking that once the idea of a Jewish nation in the heart of Palastine came to fruition in 1947 that they (the Jews) no longer had the support of any Arab kingdom.
If I'm to understand the qoute it never mentions an Israel,so once the Jewish nation was established through the war in 47 all that "goowill went out the window. Then w/ attemts to expand to the Siani (sic?) and Gaza was when things really went to hell (metaphoriclly speaking of course) What a crazy world full of double-talking monarchs and Politicans

You are right, H, that by 49, times had changed, but really the point in 1919 is that the House of Hussein "got theirs" and were more than happy to drop Palestine into the Dead Sea...no real "arabs" coulda given a rats ass about that area...they wanted the oil rich areas. Now, that's not to say they didn't change their minds later, but just goes to show there ain't no arabs/palestinians with first rights on who's been wronged, etc. If anything, the Palestinians have a much bigger bone to pick with their treatment by their own "arab" neighbors...esp with respect to the plight of refugees...

Amen to plight of of the Palestinians. I need to read up on this more. Now that Iran is threatning again I think our options in the area are few. Then you have the N. Korea Debacle
I just wish the water table wasn't so high on my property otherwise I'd already have a kick-ass bomb shelter.
Thank you for your response and and God willing we'll all be here to post again tommorrow.
Peace
